-WWE Raw is in Glasgow, Scotland at the SSE Hydro Arena. Neither Brock Lesnar nor Bill Goldberg are advertised, but the show should feature the announcement of the fifth member of Team Raw at Survivor Series (guessing Seth Rollins). WIth Raw being taped today, I will not be writing the Raw Pre-Show notes. However, you can join me for my spoiler-free live review as Raw airs on USA Network at 7:00 p.m. CT.
-The WWE Smackdown crew is in Aberdeen, Scotland at GE Oil & Gas Arena tonight with the following advertised matches: AJ Styles vs. Dean Ambrose for the WWE Championship, Kane vs. Randy Orton in a street fight, Dolph Ziggler vs. The Miz for the IC Title, Rhyno and Heath Slater vs. American Alpha vs. The Usos vs. Tyler Breeze and Fandango for the Smackdown Tag Titles, Kalisto vs. Baron Corbin, Becky Lynch vs. Alexa Bliss for the Smackdown Women’s Championship.
